    Default What do you think should be implemented to deter and curtail drinking and driving? (Poll)

    Drink driving is a huge problem and the devastation it can cause in peoples lives is incalculable. Some people just have a blatant disregard for the law and other road users, whilst other people may be honest law abiding citizens that genuinely beleived they were under the drink drive limit. What do you think should be implemented to deter and curtail drinking and driving?

    • Harsher sentences for first time offenders?
    • In car breathylzers/Ignition Interlocks?
    • Mandatory prison sentences?
    • Lifetime ban for repeat offenders?
    • A zero drink drive limit?
    Perhaps you have another possible solution?

    Hello, Please excuse my new member mistakes but i am totally in agreement with the moderator in all things.I was convicted of drink-driving in 2005 and have only applied for return of my licence in march 2010 as i wanted to make sure that my previous habits of drinking were no longer a problem.I would suggest an annual test for HRO offenders and would further suggest that anyone who has a problem with this also has a problem with alcohol.

    if the police just did random stops or just sat outside pubs in their cars whilst they do nothing waiting for a shout/job that would do it.

    stopping young drivers driving cars over 1398cc. Know a boy who just bought a 2.2 litre civic and got shafted doing 53 in a 30 zone (his fault) but way too many daft drivers out there with big powerful boy racer cars trying to act smart and then wonder why they get stopped more than the rest of us - i dont know any stats on this but would be interesting if they were collated

    The technology to retro fit immobiliser linked breathalyzers to all vehicles is cheaply available and should be implemented by law therefore taking the decision to drive while over the legal limit away from the 90,000 a year convicted in the UK. Any one found driving over the legal limit through ignoring the technology should be banned from driving for life, however this method would seriously dent the revenue made from fines and rehabilitation courses so will probably not be popular with the authorities.

    discuss?

    Our drinking culture is the problem here. When a person drinks a ridiculous amount they will soon push any deterant to the back of their mind. It is not normal to go out and drink to the point where we are no longer fit to make sensible decisions. Breathalyzer immobilizers would be very effective, but would it be fair to force all the millions of law abiding citizens to pay for them installed on their cars just incase they decided to ignore the law? We do need to change the way we drink over here, we're supposed to be in a recession yet bars are still full of people blitzing 100 / night on booze. Getting banned was the kick up the backside I needed.

    The problem is the culture we have.
    I live in an area where unemployment is high, yet there are 3 pubs and 2 working mens clubs all within a matter of a few feet of each other. In the (small) town centre there are also 2 working mens clubs, 1 nightclub plus 8-9 other pubs and now a new Weatherspoons pub is opening in what was a former cinema building and right next door to, yes you guessed it, an existing old and popular/busy pub. Every "corner" shop, of which there are loads, is also an off-licence. Even if every person in this town was employed full time, I fail to see how the number of pubs could possibly be working a profit, let alone how they're always so full when people are out of work.
    It's a crazy situation. But we are in a culture where drink is not only acceptable but is promoted and glorified, yet when things turn sour and someone dies of a drinking related disease, commits a drink fueled crime etc the blame is always the person and not the culture we are all helping to promote by being a part of it.
